ANAHEIM, Calif. – Harrison Ford lit up the stage Saturday at D23, the Disney fan expo, appearing with his "Indiana Jones 5" co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and showing the first trailer for the highly anticipated movie.
"I am very proud to say this is fantastic," said Ford, and pointed to Walter-Bridge. "And this is one of the reasons."
Often holding back tears, Ford, 80, was emotional in his speech, hinting that this would the last time he would appear in the hallowed series. "This is it," he said, waving his arm dramatically.
"I will not fall down for you again!" the "Star Wars" icon added, laughing.
The footage shown also confirmed the return of beloved character Sallah (John Rhys-Davies), Indy's trusted friend from the original "Raiders of the Last Ark."

Ford welled with emotion and hit his chest talking about having a story with "heart" and promised "this movie will kick your (butt)." The stirring trailer certainly had the D23 crowd cheering wildly.
Little is known about the plot of the new movie, but the footage, which hasn't been released online yet, shows Ford's retired adventurer Jones lamenting about his return to staid academic life with Sallah.
"I miss the adventure," Indy says.
But he's quickly pulled into action with Waller-Bridge's Helena, riding a horse through New York City (and the subway). Indiana Jones naturally dons the famous fedora and wields the whip, telling a group of gunmen to "Get back" only to be shot at (a callback to a famed "Raiders" scene). Another trailer moment shows star Mads Mikkelsen, whose role is still mysterious, in a Nazi uniform.
"Indiana Jones 5" is directed by James Mangold and is out June 30, 2023. The legendary composer John Williams, who started the series' musical immortality in "Raiders," returns to write the score.
"I had the time of my life" making this movie, Waller-Bridge said. "And keeping up with this guy is exhausting."
